Event Details

Philanthropy plays a crucial role in supporting media that raises awareness of critical issues and improves democratic processes, especially in places that lack basic press freedom protections. Around the globe, media funders have been keeping a close eye on troubling global trends and potential threats to democracy, journalism and free speech. As anti-democratic, anti-media rhetoric increases globally, funders supporting journalism work must understand and incorporate security issues into their grantmaking in order to advance essential reporting and protect journalists and journalism . 

Safety and security emerged as one of the major themes in Media Impact Funders’ forthcoming report, Global Media Philanthropy: What Funders Need to Know About Data, Trends and Pressing Issues Facing the Field of Media. Produced with funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, this research draws on data on media funding from across the globe, as well as surveys, interviews and contributions from experts working in the field. 

We invite you to join us on Tuesday, January 22, 2019 from 12 to 1pm ET (GMT -5) for a webinar on how global media philanthropy can address journalists' security. 

We’ll hear from: 

  • Sarah Armour-Jones, co-author of the global media philanthropy report, will provide an introduction to the research and share insights from the report.
  • Marius Dragomir of CEU’s Center for Media, Data & Society (formerly of OSF) will talk about how funders should respond to dramatic political shifts, such as the deteriorating climate in Hungary that has affected his work.
  • Rowan Reid, Project Director of Journalist Safety for global non-profit Internews will share tools and practices to improve digital and operational security, and how the sector can work collectively to broaden awareness and implement stronger practices.
